2012 BLI Holiday Reading Challenge

The BLI Holiday Reading Challenge
Last year I participated in the Holiday Reading Challenge and I surprised myself by reaching the level of Candy Cane-aholic. It was super fun. This year I am starting at a level of  Santas Helper by reading only 1-3 ebooks. They can be either ebooks, paperbacks, audiobooks, short stories or novellas.

UPDATE: Well I have surprised myself again! As it stands right now I have read 20 kindle short story/novellas which is the most I've ever read in a month lol . I have succeeded the level of Candy Cane-aholic! Only because I want to reach my reading challenge goal of 150 books this year. I admit I love reading christmas romance. They are fun.

I've acquired a selection of free ebooks already since they are free only for a limited time. It's time to get into the Christmas spirit and join the fun .

Claus: Legend of the Fat Man Claus: Legend of the Fat Man

by Tony Bertauski

Amazon  Goodreads

Fantasy adventure

Some legends are forged in fire. Others are born in snow.
In the early 1800s, Nicholas, Jessica and Jon Santa attempt the first human trek to the North Pole and stumble upon an ancient race of people left over from the Ice Age. They are short, fat and hairy. They slide across the ice on scaly soles and carve their homes in the ice that floats on the Arctic Ocean. The elven are adapted to life in the extreme cold. They are as wise as they are ancient.
Their scientific advancements have yielded great inventions -- time-stopping devices and gravitational spheres that build living snowmen and genetically-modified reindeer that leap great distances. They’ve even unlocked the secrets to aging. For 40,000 years, they have lived in peace.
Until now.
An elven known as The Cold One has divided his people. He’s tired of their seclusion and wants to conquer the world. Only one elven stands between The Cold One and total chaos. He’s white-bearded and red-coated. The Santa family will help him stop The Cold One.
They will come to the aid of a legendary elven known as… Claus.
